Columbus– Dolores “Dee” Maria Egan peacefully passed away surrounded by her family. Dee was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world on August 28, 2022, at age 70.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of  51 years, Jerry Egan; children: Dawn (Ulises) Roine and Kellie (Ralph) Riess; grandchildren: Maya, Ralphie, and Gabriel; sister, Joan Perron; brother, Ed Fagan; as well as numerous relatives and friends.
Dee was born to Joseph and Julia Fagan on April 9, 1952. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY where she met the love of her life and future husband, Gerard “Jerry” Joseph Egan. Their love story started at the age of 15 and were together for almost 55 years. They then spent most of their adult lives living in South Florida. Dee always dreamed of living in the mountains and she was able to spend her final years in God’s country. She loved spending time with her family and friends and was a passionate artist, photographer, and giver of herself. When it comes to love, there will never be another like her!
A private celebration will be held for Dee at a later date.

We would like to thank our family, friends, and the Columbus Baptist Church members for feeding us over these last couple of weeks. When it seemed all was lost in the world, God proved there are still selfless people who give from their hearts.
